Julia passed her Preliminary Skills test today. This is a Skate Canada StarSkate test, consisting of Waltzing Threes, Waltzing Mohawks, and Preliminary Circles. She'd also passed her first three dance tests (Dutch Waltz, Canasta, Baby Blues) earlier in the year. This was a great way to end the skating season. Last week, Kate received her 5th Canskate badge and will be starting the StarSkate program next season. We will celebrate at one of the kids' favourite restaurants this weekend. My coach has asked me to consider trying the StarSkate tests myself sometime in the future. We'll see ... First, I have to get used to the idea of wearing a skating dress again. The last time I did that, I was ten years old.
